#Hate

I made the mistake of reading some of the comments on Yahoo news stories.  It amazed and saddened me that there are so many people who are so full of hate.  It didn’t matter what the subject of the story was, the majority of the comments were full of obscenities (masked with many *** embedded in them) all of them hating whatever the story was about.  If it was a political story then the Democrats hated the Republicans and vice versa.  The nonvoters were the worst; they just hated everybody.  If it was a story about a religious figure there were hundreds of comments condemning them regardless of the religion they were with or the subject of the story.  If it was about anything Islamic the comments were frighteningly vitriolic.

If there is a story about a faithful dog or a rescued pet, the comments are sweet to the extent of being syrupy.  But a story about anything human engenders the hate comments.  It is so sad that humans have found reasons to hate other humans for as long as we have any historical records.

    It is no surprise!
    Since we are born we are given the message, every time…every moment…
    That message is supposedly positive, wanting you to give your best, to be better every day, but as time goes by it changes like this:
    You are an individual…
    you are alone…
    you have to do something…
    it is you against the world…
    nobody is going to help you…
    effort, concentrate, fight…
    have a strong ego…
    you can do what you please…
    nobody can stop you…
    you got to prove them wrong…
    get it from them before they get it from you…
    step on them before they step on you…

    And so on…And we get it from government, from entrepreneurs, from family, from ¨upmanship¨ courses…So, we should not be surprised when what we get from people is hatred even for their the people near and around them…and those from other countries and races? Even worse, pure hatred…
    So we have to change our message to children and youngsters…there are some words I love: ECLECTICISM AND SINERGY, COOPERATION AND SHARING, ORGANIZATION AND PLANNING…This words have nothing to do with colectivism and communism, but that is what they make us believe…divide an conquer, isolate the individual, turn them into psychopaths and schizophrenics…and then, surprisingly, we think that it is hard to manage this ego kindergarden…
